This is usually a symptom of not updating the whole ports tree.  If I
remember correctly, the trouble is caused by a missing definition of
one of the standard command variables from /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk.
In this case it seems it would be one of either the SED or the
REINPLACE_CMD --

    happy-idiot-talk:...ports/www/firefox:% grep -e '-e ' Makefile
            @${SED} -e 's|@FIREFOX_ICON@|${FIREFOX_ICON}|' \
            @${REINPLACE_CMD} -e
            '/accessibility.typeaheadfind.enablesound/s/true/false/ ;
            \

So make(1) is trying to run '-e' as a command, and that doesn't work.

From the firefox port directory, try running:

    make -V SED -V REINPLACE_CMD

If the result is not the same as this:

    happy-idiot-talk:...ports/www/firefox:% make -V SED -V REINPLACE_CMD 
    /usr/bin/sed
    /usr/bin/sed -i.bak

then you need to track down exactly where SED or REINPLACE_CMD are
being mangled, and fix that.  Check for potential breakage in
/etc/make.conf, and use cvsup or portsnap or your method of choice to
grab a clean copy of the whole ports tree.

     Cheers,

     Matthew
